Make sure you are running 1.1 http://support.frictionalgames.com/entry/95/ and see if that helps.

Re-check so that your drivers for the graphics card really is up-to-date. Uninstall the current driver, then reboot and install the new driver, then reboot and play the game.

You might have to use an alternative driver or an older driver version then.

already used a older version of driver and Omega driver, don't work
Omega driver is a best alternative driver for ATI, this even has been proved by ATI developers

Perhaps the game installation is corrupt or a 9550 is not capable of running the game.
